ALLIANCE, Ohio (AP) - Fundraising is underway for repairs to a 111-year-old landmark building designed as a castle in northeastern Ohio.

The Alliance Review reports (https://bit.ly/2a3nsYu ) $75,000 was donated in the first few days of a campaign launched this summer aimed at raising $1.5 million for Glamorgan Castle in Alliance.

The goal is a new roof, new air conditioning and heating system and a functioning elevator for the structure.

The building was home to local industrialist William Henry Morgan upon completion in 1905.

Glamorgan Castle was designed to resemble castles in Wales, the homeland of Morgan’s father.

The Alliance Board of Education acquired the building in 1973.
